Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
I reckon 5% of pairs play ‘Sandwich’ in England, and fewer/less than 20% of club pairs have even heard of it. Of course it should be alerted.
Other as a logical alternative

How should Multi be allowed (if at all) under the Open+ chart?
I was playing in Florida with an English partner. I opened 1NT, announced as 12-14, and he bid 2C. I alerted and, when asked, said it showed a multitude of possible hands. On hearing the partial word 'multi' my opponents snapped into action and called the director. When the director ...

Bridge is an entertainment sport with cards. Because the two sides of the game have been fighting against ...
Bridge Players and the movie world
Yes, the TV version was made in 2005. By chance, Christie's description of the deal will appear in December's ACBL Bulletin, I believe. One more anecdote. The scene which included the (spoiler alert) murderous deal was meant to start with the opening lead, then dummy laying down his ...
Bridge Players and the movie world
I was the bridge 'consultant' on the set of the TV version of Cards on the Table with David Suchet as Poirot. None of the actors played bridge at all. Someone else had trained them on the mechanics of the game, bidding in turn, cards in the middle, collecting tricks ...
